61st National Film Awards presented by the President of India at Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi on 3rd May, 2014

The President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee conferred the film awards for the year 2013 in various categories at the 61st National Film Awards presentation ceremony held at the Vigyan Bhawan on 3rd May, 2014. In his address, the President, Shri Pranab Mukherjee said, “I take this opportunity to reflect upon an important aspect of cinema. Besides being a strong medium of expression, cinema is a vehicle of influence and persuasion for the youth”. He also said, “the cinematic content of films should have a desirable impact on the social behaviour of people, especially the new generation. Faced with erosion of values in today’s context, cinema should play a catalytic role in resetting our moral compass. Our film makers should deploy their creative efforts to present and propagate core values such as patriotism, respect for women, compassion and tolerance, and honesty and discipline. I am hopeful that everyone associated with the film industry will use their talent and artistic pursuits to create meaningful and socially relevant cinema.”
